This broth is like cheese dashi. The slow simmer allows the rinds to infuse the water with cheesiness. I used it as a base for different soups, for a chawanmushi–style custard replacing the corn dashi in the Corn Kernel Flan, and for sauces.

How to Make It


Combine the rinds and water in a medium pot. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 1 hour, until the liquid is reduced to about 2 cups. Remove the rinds. Add the salt and lemon juice and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
